Amino acids are the foundation of pretty much everything in our amazing body and are also essential for the bodies’ metabolic process. Glutamine is the most common amino acid produced within our muscles and gets distributed by blood to our organs that need it.
What are the benefits of Glutamine?
Current research suggests that supplementing L-Glutamine in your diet can reduce muscle breakdown and improve protein metabolism therefore improving athletic performance and recovery from endurance exercise. It could also help gut function, the immune system, and other essential processes in the body, especially in times of stress thus helping to improve symptoms such as IBS and diarrhoea. New studies are also showing that glutamine could improve glycaemic control; potentially good news for diabetics however research is still new and limited here.
Why USN Glutamine and do I need it?
If you are wanting to bulk or are not trying to lose weight then you are probably getting enough Glutamine in your diet however if you are cutting or looking to just maintain lean muscle then this is a proven supplement. It is also a great supplement if you are an endurance athlete or are leading an extremely active lifestyle. The USN Micronized Glutamine from the essentials range is a form of Glutamine that has been divided to increase solubility; this enables it to be absorbed by your muscles faster and more effectively to increase glutamine levels that drop during training.
How do I take it?
Take one serving prior to your workout and another serving following your workout. For best results, take a last serving prior to bedtime to maximise recovery as sleep is when your body recovers most effectively.
